De-Railed

If you have never been to the High Line, make sure you check it out if you ever visit New York City. It is essentially a linear park built on an elevated railroad spur along the west side of Manhattan. It is an excellent use of an abandoned section of transit, …

Not Quite Harvest

This photo is an improvement over the one I took earlier this year. It’s true that this moon is much closer to being full – and while this is great because it is reflecting more light from the sun, it is also not so great because it is reflecting more …

Sunset Paddle

Perhaps not the most stellar photograph – but I do enjoy it. I took this one from East Beach at the Lake of Two Rivers in Algonquin Park. There is something peaceful about paddling in the morning or the evening. The noises of the day have mostly faded away and …

Canisbay Silhouette

Astrophotography is definitely not my strong suit. I took a number of photos last year, and only one of them really turned out the way I wanted it to. Attaining a crisp image is challenging because keeping the exposure too long will result in trails (because the Earth is turning, …

Eye In the Sky

There is a green space near my house that is cut off from most of the light sources in the city. It’s a great place to take photos of the sky at night since there is very little interference. To have such an ideal place to shoot allows for some …

San Fran At Night

It is rare for me to fall in love with a city. While I am not as well-traveled as some, I have visited a number of cities in different places around the world – but I have have never felt the pull that I did when I visited San Francisco. …

The Greatest Heights

I am well known for capturing images like this; I have quite a number, to be honest. I never get tired of this particular angle, though; and this time, I found a singular tree along the Spruce Bog Trail in Algonquin Park that was very interesting in the way that …

Misleading

The night that I took this photograph, the moon was closer to the Earth than it had been for a long time. I went for a walk to the river near my house to see what sort of images I could capture and decided to try and capitalize on the …

Peeking

Canisbay, a car-camping area located off of Highway 60 in Algonquin Park, is (in my opinion) one of the better-maintained camping areas in the park (not counting the interior). There are several trails between the main camping areas and the beaches /comfort stations. I took a stroll along one of …

Evening Glory

A number of years ago, I took a photograph of this lake with my EOS ELAN-7E. I have always wanted to take something similar, but since I have a young kiddo now, I can’t get out (and stay out) as late as I would like during a typical camping trip. …

Lookout Trail Panorama

This is my first real attempt to photo-stitch a landscape. This scene, consisting of four photos merged together, is the main overlook on the Lookout Trail in Algonquin Park. It is a fantastic vista and surely worth the hike (which isn’t really all that long – it is just all …

Fiery Morning

I visited Little Doe Lake in Algonquin Park with some friends over a long weekend in August, 2008. It rained like Noah was coming for most of the beginning of the trip. The foul weather kept a grip on us for most of the weekend, intermittently teasing us with warmth …
